Standing on the verge of maintaining their Premier League status for another season and having taken the club to its first ever FA Cup Final, it’s been an unbelievable season for everybody at the KC Stadium and Rosenior says that is largely down to the togetherness of the group.
“I can’t really put it into words,” admitted Rosenior.
“The most important people at a football club aren’t always necessarily the ones that are playing. You look at the lads that missed out at Wembley in the semi-final – McShane, Brady, Greegsy, Joe Dudgeon, Shane Long, Jelavic – they all came down to support us. They were on the pitch with us.
“The togetherness in this squad is something that I have never experienced and I hope that we can stay together for as long as possible and improve and get better. We want to keep this club in the Premier League for many years to come.
“We’re in the FA Cup to win it as well. We’ll do our homework on Arsenal and come up with the best plan to try and beat them. Hopefully it will be enough to lift the trophy.”
The Tigers return to Premier League action this weekend, ironically against cup final opponents Arsenal, but more than a dress rehearsal for that big day, important league points are at stake as City look to mathematically guarantee their top flight status in the next couple of weeks.
“Sunday’s game against Arsenal won’t have any bearing on the final,” added Rosenior.
“We have to make sure we get mathematically safe in this league and we’re not there yet. We enjoyed last Sunday, but we’re back at work now to make sure we’re still in this league next season.
“We all know that Arsenal have world class players all over the pitch and for us to beat them, either on Sunday or in the cup final, we’re going to have to be at our best.
“It’s going to be a tough game on Sunday.”
